  • © 2020 ACM.The challenge of transforming a teacher education program into a practice-based teacher education program involves relevant innovations. Especially innovations regarding the type of teaching and assessment strategies that are developed in courses taught within those on-campus programs. For this reason, after the first years of implementation of the practice-based approach, it is relevant to measure whether the lesson plans that the teacher educators carry out consider teaching and assessment strategies that promote an approximation to pedagogical practice in pre-service teachers. This study aims to present the validation of an instrument designed to collect information on the type of teaching and assessment activities planned by teacher educators in on-campus courses. The methodology consisted of two rounds of the Delphi method. The results show the validation of the instrument, constituting therefore a valid tool for the collection of integrated information on both dimensions. The validated instrument is useful for practice-based teacher education programs to relate the activities that their teacher educators plan to the guidelines of this approach. Thus monitoring the scope of the innovation, they are developing.
